Product Lead - Data

Remote | Full-time

We evaluate what to pursue, craft strategies to maximize impact, and help teams deliver market success.

We believe the way people interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years. We’re dedicated to empowering this transformation by building the tools and infrastructure developers need to create their own products. Plaid powers the tools millions of people rely on to live a healthier financial life. We work with thousands of companies like Venmo and SoFi, several of the Fortune 500, and many of the largest banks to make it easy for people to connect their financial accounts to the apps and services they want to use. Plaid’s network covers 11,000 financial institutions across the US, Canada, UK and Europe. Founded in 2013, the company is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in New York, Salt Lake City, Washington D.C., London and Amsterdam.

Who We Are
Data drives Plaid! Reducing the complexity of working with data, while maintaining proper reliability, security, and usage is critical to our success, as our business grows. Our data platform teams provide the infrastructure and tooling that supports all data at Plaid, helping teams explore our data quickly and safely to get the insights they need. They do this without compromising consumer, customer, and financial institution’s trust, which ultimately helps us better serve the entire fintech ecosystem.
